Welcome to Mahay Mitia Ala
The Mahay Mitia Ala (MMA) park opened in 2011 and is managed by a local association to promote biodiversity, conservation and local development. The same species are found here as in the other parks nearby, including the indri and the elusive aye-aye. The main benefit of this park is accessibility. The trails are clear and wide, allowing better views of wildlife, and there are no steep hills such as exist elsewhere. The park entrance is one kilometre north of the MNP office in the Réserve Spéciale d'Analamazaotra, where guides can be found. There is a small circuit (two hours, guide Ar20,000) and a large circuit (three hours, Ar30,000). Two-hour night hikes are Ar15,000.
